Young readers now have a place of their own…
The eReading Room is a safe environment for children to find eBooks, audiobooks, and streaming video. It’s independent of our larger digital collection, yet easily accessible and fully integrated.
All titles in the eReading Room can be browsed or searched by reading level, ATOS scores (similar to Lexile ratings which give the readability level of books), and other reading metrics to help parents and teachers select titles.
Kids and teens can browse, sample, place holds, and borrow eBooks and other media appropriate for their age range and reading level. Kids can spend as much time as they want clicking away and exploring without the worry of them stumbling upon mature content.
The checkout and hold experience is the same as with our existing digital site, so when the kids are ready to graduate to the next level, they’ll already be seasoned users of the website’s tools and navigation.
